Captivated by what he saw, he realized his first graffiti in 1988. His paintings with acidulous colors and Wildstyle leaves nobody indifferent. Very quickly he is recognized as one of the most talented graffiti artist of the capital. He is also one of the few who excels in the work of volumes as well as in the drawing.
In 1998, he develops his work of sculpture and realizes his first character in volume. In 2001, with his label "Bonustoys", he publishes his own toys.
He then became one of the pioneers of what we call "designer toys", these small vinyl sculptures today have been produced in editions (edition) of 100 to 1000 ex. and have been sold in collectible toy stores around the world. Today, Mist is fully dedicated to his creation in his workshop in Montpellier, where he lives today.
